  1. Hello, I've been using ChartFX for a while now, and my users are increasingly annoyed with the length of time it takes to display a fairly simple bar chart. I ran Rational Quantify to get some times on how long certain functions are taking, and I was surprised. For example, when setting up the chart legend, the UserLegendBoxItem.Put_Label function is called three times and takes 4.98 seconds to execute. Accessing the Chart.UserLegendBoxObj one time takes 4.78 seconds. When I step over lines like these in my code debugger, there is a visible pause before these lines are completed. My que
  2. Thanks, that makes sense of course, except that I want to display help for the chart functionality, i.e. right-clicking on the chart displays a popup of ChartFX options like opening the data editor, displaying the toolbar, legend box etc... There must be a help file that describes how to use the functions and toolbar options of a ChartFX chart, isn't there? If I have that file, then the app can handle the InternalCommand event and open the file itself, that's fine.
  3. Hello, I am trying to add ChartFX Help to a chart toolbar. I use the following code in VB6: .ToolBarObj.InsertAt 0, 1 .ToolBarObj(0) = CommandID_Help and the Help button does appear in the chart. When I click it I even get a popup that displays Contents, Search and About options. But when I select one of the options, nothing happens. I guess that the chart can't find the Help file, so it does nothing, but I'm not sure. Does anyone know what Help file it might be looking for? I want to display end-user help on how to use the chart, so I don't need the API Help files Thanks.
